“It’s Our Time” is a book that grew out of a public slur against African Nova Scotians who live in a cluster of communities known as The Preston Township.
That insult made Rev. Dr. Joyce Ross resolve to publicise the deeper story of resilient Black men and women who fled slavery and wars in the U.S. and Jamaica, and then overcame more obstacles in their new country.
While Wanda Taylor researched and wrote the book, she suggested that host Costas Halavrezos interview the inspiration for the book – Rev. Dr. Ross.
